I'm hosting the July Tag swap on http://www.ukscrappers.co.uk/ with the theme stars & stripes.
As many Americans will be celebrating the 4th of July , their independence day I thought I'd used the on my tags this month.
So this is what I've used to make my tags .
I put the tags to one side to let them dry thoroughly & got on with cutting three pieces of red card & run them through a Tim Holtzs embossing folder & then with a dry brush & a little gold paint I lightly went over the raised area so that it high lighted them. I edged the card with gold paint as well.
Next my flags were cut using a sizzix die & the other shapes in blue have been cut with a spell binders die.
The flags have been painted with the red, white & blue acrylic paint & then once again all have been edged with gold paint.
I went through my stash & pulled out the white die cuts . The lady holding the flag was an image from the internet, & the gold letters I cut using another sizzix die.
The green leaves in the first picture you can see have been cut using a spell binders & Tim Holts die.
So now I can show you my finished tags for the swap.
A side view of the tags & I'd finished them off with blue & white and red & white twine from my stash.
